Sponge Chats – Teacher Training and Climate Awareness with Harry Waters from Renewable English

This blog post is part of the Sponge Chats video series.

For this Sponge Chat, I had the pleasure to sit down with teacher trainer, content developer and climate change activist Harry Waters from Renewable English. We got to speak about a whole range of things, from his journey into teacher training to his motivations for starting Renewable English and helping teachers and learners become more climate-aware.

Harry shared with us plenty of blog and book recommendations to get you all reading and browsing. I have done my best to write them all here!

I had a great time with Harry and was delighted that he was able to sit down and share his experiences. I feel his mission is an important one, and I hope that you all go check out his stuff. Also, I hope Greta comes and speaks with him! Please Greta!
